Clark State expands tuition discount for military families

Woolpert acquires California company

Woolpert, a Beavercreek-based engineering and design services firm, anticipates annual revenue of $2.5 million from the acquisition of Kings Canyon Technology, company officials said Friday.

Kings Canyon Technology (KCT) is a professional services firm based in Reedley, Calif., that provides software, hardware, and implementation services to public and private agencies. The company has 15 employees and will now operate under the Woolpert name, said Jocelyn Hodson, a Woolpert spokeswoman.

Woolpert officials said the acquisition will give the company a West Coast presence and strengthen the software implementation services it offers to clients nationwide. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

KCT has doubled in size for each of the past two years.

Founded in 2003, KCT is a veteran-owned business that has provided permitting and land licensing software implementation services to clients that include the City of Sacramento, Sacramento County, the City of New Orleans and the State of Oregon.

The addition of KCT now makes Woolpert one of the nation’s largest professional service groups dedicated to asset management and permitting services, said Scott Cattran, Woolpert senior vice president and director of infrastructure management services.

Founded in 1911, Woolpert is a design, geospatial and infrastructure consulting firm. Woolpert has about 600 employees at 22 U.S. offices, including 177 at its Beavercreek headquarters.
